Amazing food. Awesome Service. Great prices. Super cold beer. I don't write a review every time I eat at Taberna but I could write a five star review every time I eat there. I had the spaghetti this time, which I almost never do in a restaurant due to coming from an Italian family. No one's spaghetti stands up to what we get at home. This does. Pomodoro or bolognese, either is wonderful. The atmosphere is amazing whether you dine inside the building or outside on the patio, but many times you'll have the inside to yourself because most others prefer the patio. Beautiful decor as well, adds to the experience.

My wife and I spent New Years Eve at Taberna Mediterranea Bar Restaurant and had an absolutely great time. The food and service was topnotch for the Samana area. I ordered the steak and it was amazing, truly the best steak in Samana. Tender chewable meat in the D.R. is a rarity. I must recommend this restaurant if your looking for a quiet evening with excellent food and a great view...!!!

We just returned from a week-long vacation in Samana. By chance we happened upon this restaurant within the first 10 minutes of driving into town, and it was exactly what we needed after eight hours of driving in the R.D. La Taberna is the perfect blend of classy, clean, romantic, friendly, fun, and above all, serves absolutely delicious and fresh food. The owner, Nina, made us feel so welcome that we returned the very next day for dinner and drinks afterward. We love connecting with people in whatever culture we find ourselves in, and I can honestly say that Nina was the best hostess we have encountered in all of our travels. A beautiful restaurant, a beautiful view, and a beautiful family. MUCHAS GRACIAS, NINA!!! We miss you!!! --- Amanda & Doug
